You really must take the tour , it was so interesting looking around what amounted to a time warp , how it was back then , with a knowledgeable guide taking the group through each room in turn.

A wonderful look into the art world! Beautiful house, lovingly looked after and kept with many items from the wonderful painter Heysen. Also, his daughter has a collection within the house as well.

We visited The Cedars in August and would recommend this as a must do for anyone even remotely interested in art. A fascinating display in such historic settings.

Hans Heysen's house and studio tour is a must see. The buildings are fascinating and the guides are. Terrific providing the visitor with so much insight into him and the family.

This is the home, studio and garden of Australian artist Hans Heysen. Enjoyed the guided tour - our guide "Paula" was so lovely and had so many interesting stories to tell as we walked through the house and looked at Hans Heysen's artwork. There is a Shop to purchase prints of his paintings, cards, and bookmarks etc.

Thank SalCo7
